Monday evening was project presentation day for the project teams in the Software Engineering class (CS-487, Fall 2012, instructor Virgil Bistriceanu.)
Each team selected their own project and then worked for 14 weeks, in an agile fashion, on producing working software; on presentation day they unveiled the result of their work in front of their peers.
Each team gave a ten minute presentation of their project followed by Q&A.
Following the presentations, students voted for the top three projects in the “Best Team” and the “Best Application” categories. Voting was done online and the results were announced minutes later.
- Project Name: Gesture Wave
- Team Members: Benjamin Piatt (team lead), Eusebiu Pintilei, Lorraine Dalusong, Alex Yu
- Project Name: IIT Marketplace
- Team Members: Victor Mours (team lead), Hristo Nenov, Leo Larrere, Yang Song
BrightTag, a very innovative, well funded Chicago-based startup, recent winner of three Moxie Awards, has sponsored the prizes awarded for the best projects.
BrightTag already employs two IIT graduates, and is always looking for bright talent.
